Bourjois Rouge Edition Aqua Laque Liquid Lipsticks


I was lucky enough to attend the Bourjois S/S15 press event recently and one of the products we were introduced to at the event are the new Rouge Edition Aqua Laque liquid lipsticks. These are the latest addition to the Rouge Edition line and after being seriously impressed by the Rouge Edition Velvet's with their highly pigmented matte finish, I was super excited to here about the launch of the Aqua Laque's which unlike the Velvet's have a super shiny and glossy finish.

The first thing I wanted to mention is the packaging which is the same style as the Velvet's with the addition of a shiny lid to represent the glossy formula. I personally prefer this packaging as it makes them look more luxe and some of the pale pink / neutral shades have rose gold lids and as you know, I'm a big rose gold fan.


Moving on to the actual product, I really like them. They're still a liquid lipstick like the Velvet's in the respect that they do stain the lips but on initial application they feel more like a gel and have quite a wet and very glossy texture. However, when the gloss wears off, I'm still left with a hint of colour on my lips which I like. I've never really been into matte lips so this kind of finish definitely appeals more to me.

The only thing that isn't as great as the Velvet's is the pigmentation - these are definitely less pigmented so if you want something very bold, I'd go for the Velvet's and just add a gloss over them if you like shine. On the other hand, I feel these are much better for day to day wear and are the kid of lip product you can throw in a handbag and re-apply throughout the day without worrying about precise application.


In terms of colour rage, there's eight shades available in this new formula and I received four of them in my goody bag after the event. From left to right in the swatches above we have 'Appechissant' which is a gorgeous nude pink 'my lips but better' kind of shade, 'Babe Idole' which is a barbie bubblegum pink, 'Fuchsia Perchie' which as the name states is a bright Fuchsia and finally 'Feelin Reddy' which is a vivid orange toned red. They're all gorgeous shades and due to the glossy formula, they're easy to wear both day and night. I noticed there isn't any true nude shades in the range and they all fall into the pink / red category but I don't mind that as I'm more of a bold lip kinda girl anyway.

Do you like the look of the latest lip product to join the Rouge Edition line up? You can get them here for £7.20 (currently reduced from £8.99).

  6. They look lovely but I prefer the velvets cause of their matte finish. These will probably be good for summer time with lighter makeup :)

  13. Damn. I should not have read this post. I bought a few from the Velvet range and I absolutely adore them. I have promoted them to my friends and some of them have jumped on the Bourjois band wagon and purchased a few of them. I am going to keep my eye out for these bad boys, so Thank You for sharing this with us.

  29. These will be perfect for summer! Such a great price as well, could buy the collection for what it costs for a higher end lip product.

  34. I don't usually reach for bourjois but keep seeing the rouge edition velvets and now the new liquid lipsticks everywhere! I think I will opt for the velvets as I'm all about long-lasting, highly-pigmented lip colours at the mo, I wonder if any of the laques match in colour and could be worn over the top?! Lovely photos and great informative post as always :)

  44. I have an original version in a bright red shade and adore it, but it's not a shade I feel happy wearing every day. These new, toned down versions sound perfect so I'm really keen to splash out on one! The packaging looks gorgeous too.

  54. I really liked the look of these when I saw them in Boots although I obviously wasn't feeling bold colours at the time. The nude pink shades look nice though, may have to go back for one of those! (:
